Notions of the Deaf and Dumb before Instruction: Especially in Regard to Religious Subjects.
Peet, Harvey P.
American Annals of the Deaf, v142 n3 p8-17 Jul 1997
This article from 1855 discusses the validity of signing for individuals with deafness and the need to develop an instinctive "language of gestures" to enable them to profit by the experiences of others and to share in social communion. The need for sign language to communicate religious instruction is emphasized. (CR)
